Hello again, Wednesday! Today is the day many of us gather over at Julia’s and share a peek of what we’re working on. Take a look see if you have a few minutes, it’s always interesting and rather fun. 🙂
Here’s my workdesk today. I’ve been busy working through two polymer clay projects from Donna Kato’s CraftArtEdu.
On the left is my scrap clay bin, gonna need a bigger one soon. On the right is my big, honkin’ Fire Mountain Gems catalog (nearly 1300 pages!) I love poking through this big book of goodies, it reminds me of the Sears wishbook. (Ok, am I dating myself? How many of you remember the Sears wishbook?)
I finished the Evangelina Ring. It was a fun project, but the directions were a bit lacking. I managed to figure it out from the photos, though.
This is the class project photo. I changed it up by making my flower petals from a blended cane and also added texture to the petals and the flower centers.
As you can see, this is a highly impractical, but extremely fun ring to wear. 🙂
The other class I took was Donna Kato’s Everyday Bangles with Dangles. I wanted to take this class because, although I kept hearing from other polymer clay artists about the strength and flexibility of poly clay, I wasn’t convinced it could be used to make something durable, like a bangle bracelet. Now I am!
The three bracelets on top of each other are from Donna’s class, the one on the upper left is me taking the concept and heading off in my own direction.
Now I have to go off and finish a certain HUGE memory quilt. Photos to follow soon.
